Rodgers must swoop for PL fringe player to solve Celtic problem area
Brendan Rodgers must is consider a move for Tottenham goalkeeper Michel Vorm in the January transfer window in order to sort out the problem area between the sticks.
Rodgers has had nothing but success since taking over at Celtic Park in May 2016, but one blindspot seems to be that of first choice goalkeeper.
He perhaps wasn’t convinced with current number one choice Craig Gordon when he arrived in Glasgow, which is why Dorus de Vries was signed from Nottingham Forrest.
That move didn’t work, as de Vries was dropped following a 7-0 defeat against Barcelona, and has made only one starting appearance since, although he did recently sign a one year contract extension.
Gordon has since reclaimed the goalkeeping position, but supporters remain unconvinced and he almost cost the Hoops their long unbeaten British record domestic run with a mistake in the recent 2-2 draw against Hibs.

A reunion for Rodgers with Tottenham fringe player Vorm could be the ideal solution for this problem.
The pair worked together at Swansea City, and with Vorm currently third choice goalkeeper behind Hugo Lloris and Paulo Gazzaniga with Premier League side Spurs, he would surely welcome the chance of first team football in Glasgow, with the chance of swapping the bench in London for European football.
All big clubs need three goalkeepers, and if Michel Vorm joins the Bhoys in January he may well be the best at the club.
